Trixie can Crawl

She followed me into the kitchen this morning. My initial reaction was similar to discovering that a stray animal has followed you home. It’s cute but also a little bit alarming. Are you supposed to feed it? Does it have rabies? In short, “Yes, yes, you’re adorable. Now go home.” Of course, Trixie is home, she doesn’t have rabies and we’ve already been feeding her for about 6 months, so she gets to stay.

The more pressing issue is that I saw the kitchen floor in a whole new light. There are dangers everywhere: laundry detergent, stain remover, recycling, the open dish washer. And Trixie was staring wide-eyed at them all.

    I’d put this way up there, like with man landing on the moon.

    Just so you know, and don’t go postal, Trixie’s recent and disappointing nap regression is directly related to her new trick – crawling. Why sleep when you can ambulate??? Only gotta sleep enough to get enuf energy to crawl some more. Those pics of her crawling crack me up – she looks so cute, but I feel so sorry for y’all at the same time. This early crawling couldn’t have been anticipated, just like when you take in a stray and they act normal for awhile, only to turn out to be Cujo. My condolences.

    Its a wonderful thing. Remember 911 if she starts to crawl and climb the shelves.
